Federal Government Assumes Control of Arizona Forests

State and federal officials in Arizona are fighting just the latest skirmish in a long-running war over just how restrictive rules should be over human use of forest and desert areas. The locals want fewer and uniform restrictions, while their D.C. counterparts like to play “What will we cite people for this week?” with campers, hunters, and pretty much anybody who likes the outdoors. The most recent battle is over a federal rule-switch, requiring hunters to move their camps every 72 hours. Decades-long practice, as Arizona Game and Fish Department points out, is to allow campers to stay in place for 14 days.
